Calling volunteers - your community needs you!

Reflecting our caring community, we have been approached by many people here in Inverclyde eager to offer their support at this time. So we are using our dedicated volunteering website, www.volunteerinverclyde.org.uk, where we have added 'COVID-19' as an event to capture those willing and able to help.

We are keen to hear from staff or volunteers from third sector or private sector organisations who are available to volunteer in their community during the COVID-19 pandemic and hold a current PVG membership. If you are interested in volunteering, we would ask you to visit the Volunteer Inverclyde COVID-19 event page, which is being updated at the moment to include opportunities with the NHS.

We have produced guidance on volunteering at this time - click here to download FAQs for Volunteering in Inverclyde during the COVID-19 Pandemic - in PDF format.

Organisations that have already registered to access our website can then contact potential volunteers directly themselves if they need any help during this period. Potential volunteers can be reassured when signing up that their details will only be accessed by trusted organisations.

We are also asking organisations and groups that require volunteers and are not yet registered, to contact our Volunteer Development Officer, Catriona MacLeod and, if appropriate, she will pass on details about how they can sign up to access the volunteering list.

Catriona can be contacted on E: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or This email address is being protected from spambots.

As we are sharing this and relevant updates on all our social media platforms, we are asking others please do the same to ensure the information is spread as widely as possible. It is important that our community knows where to turn to for help during this difficult time.

Our Inverclyde Life information and events platform for the third sector is also being used to help. We have now added "COVID-19" as a tag at www.inverclydelife.com and are asking all groups to update their "About" section to include what they can do to help at this time - such as preparing food parcels, dog walking, daily phone calls to those self-isolating and much more - using the COVID-19 tag.
